Read Frequently Asked Questions

Now, more than ever, retailers, apparel chains, brands and consumer focused companies are faced with increasing number of requirements from their investors, internal and external stake holders to demonstrate the efficiency and effectiveness of their social compliance programs. Increasing allegations and incidents of labor law violations are an indication that organizations need to constantly improve their methodologies and capabilities to adapt to ongoing and varied supply chain challenges.

With multiple entities including suppliers, audit firms, NGOs, internal auditors collecting and managing data either in manual or siloed manner, the quality of data available is scattered and inconsistent. Also, collecting "Good Data" from audits, suppliers, compliance monitors or through shared platforms such as Sedex/BSCI/FFC, is a serious challenge as large number of suppliers still misrepresent their practices and feed in "Bad Data".

Organizations need to adopt comprehensive program models and data management strategies to measure social compliance risks, understand the impact of their efforts and report performance to stakeholders.

Join James McMichael, Vice President, Level Works Limited and Keri Dawson, Vice President of ComplianceOnline Advisory Services, MetricStream as they discuss various challenges that organizations are facing and provide their actionable suggestions. Key discussion points include:

  • Compliance models and evolving data expectations
  • Industry approaches to social compliance data management, importance of good data, managing skewed audit results
  • Avoiding supplier dishonesty and falsification of data
  • Using clean data to drive performance
  • Recommendations for creating a credible social compliance program
